"Have you ever worked third shift before?"
No. I hadn't.
"It may take some getting used to."
It's been six weeks now. It will take some getting used to. I begin my shift one day and finish it the next and am never quite sure whether it's yesterday, today or tomorrow. All three happen during my eight hour shift.
One thing that took no time getting used to is the commute. Six minutes by car. Sixteen minutes by bike. By bike is best. As described by a weekly dose of architecture one just pedals the beerline to the marsupial bridge and you're downtown.
